country that killed 12 and wound dozens more. so what's it done to us? what has this event stirred in this country? made us different from the people who watch this program, say, just a week ago. i want to know. i want to hear again the many separate human actions that night that tell us what kind of a country we are and where we are headed. i want to hear not just about the villain and the victims, but also the heroes. the impulsive good guys that night. the ones that hemming way described as courage, grace under fire and under pressure. i want to know how aurora is going to affect this country. us. today brought the announce many that denver, colorado, just miles from the tragedy will host the first presidential debate this autumn. this all but guarantees that the two presidential candidates, president obama and mitt romney will be asked about the tragedy. what should they say? let's ask governor ed rendell what barack obama should say. it will be interesting. to start with, let's their personal stories following a tragedy like aurora. look at how heartbreaking they are and tell
that strange to the congress. >> well, then give us some assurance. tell us that behind the scenes at least there's some constructive conversation going on about how to deal with this fiscal cliff before we go over it. >> well, i believe that the budget priorities committee, the committee on budget priorities and policies, they have said to us that this is not really a cliff in the common sense of the word, but more like a slope because i do believe that even after the elections, there is plenty enough time for us to come back here in a lame duck and do what is necessary to extend budgetary considerations for at least a year while we'll have time to really work on things we need to do. and that is to have the massive overhaul of our tax code. i think that we're in the trouble we're in today not so much because of people's priorities but because we have a problem with our tax code that needs to be fixed. i think that's what's important about that vote today. >> but, congressman, that approach of, we'll all get together and work together after the election, someday never seems to come. you we
. if you want to join us on social media, you can send us a tweet. you can also send us an e-mail. a poll about the said of the economy and one of the questions asked was the role washington should play. here is the right appeared this is from "the miami herald." >> again, the headlines, taking a role -- taking a look at what role government should take, whether robocalls and is helping or hurting the economy when it comes to helping it grow. that is what we will ask you this morning. if you want to mention the question, but then, you can give a call in one of three lines/party. is uncle sam helping or hurting the economy? this is from "the baltimore sun." the headline is "the american economy stuck in low gear." again, and uncle sam, helping or hurting the economy? here's the headline one more time. one of the take away from this is that 22% of democrats say that the government -- is that 72% of democrats say that the government should solve the economic problem. again, of sam, helping or hurting the economy? caller: the gop house is hurting the economy. the stimulus did not work. it ran
what kristen was mentioning to us, the president kicking off his bus tour tomorrow. pawlenty and jindal will bracketing with him and rob portman as well, traveling to new hampshire this weekend. no word if he'll be meeting with romney. where do we stand in terms of the what's the messaging we're looking for going forward as the president goes out there and tries to make the message, put the message out there, that romney is a jobs expovertier? >> of course, the message that the obama campaign has been pushing hard from the very beginning is attacking mitt romney's record at bain capital. and as controversial as that tactic has been from both republicans and democrats, most notably corey booker and bill clinton, that's really the lane that the obama campaign is staying in. and they're sort of attacking bain capital from every angle they can find, their latest political attack ad against romney focused on bain capital investing in companies that ship jobs overseas. and that's -- i think it's a strategy that's really been working for the obama campaign. he's been able to paint romney as so
. activists say at least 71 people have been killed around that country today alone. >>> back in the u.s., the country is still sweltering under extreme heat and drought conditions. according to statistics released by the national oceanic and atmosphere administration, almost 64% of the country is experiencing moderate or worse drought conditions and it's remained largely unchanged from last week. areas suffering from extreme drought jumped from 13.5% to 20.5%. and 55% of the nation's pastures and rangeland are also in very poor condition. the effect of the extreme heat will soon take its toll on our wallets with corn and other crops withering and dying in the heat, food prices are expected to shoot up. emily schmidt has the details. >> reporter: in a rural corner of maryland, it is the right place at the wrong time to live off the land. >> sunnyside road, yeah. it's been sunnyside too much this year. >> too much sun, too little rain for too long. tommy bowls' crops are the worst he's had in 25 years of farming. have you ever seen anything worse than this? >> i've never seen anything. i'
. [laughter] that is one. i used to congress on your corner. hear you say, i'm going to do this. it is the most intimate form of government. they did not hear your message about the telephone. [laughter] let me say this. we are having -- this is a pet peeve so thank you. this discussion about all that matters is tax rate is ridiculous. i cut upper head tax rates by 50% and by the time my term is out, we will eliminate it. tax breaks matter. -- tax rates matter. but any business person will also tell you the quality of a workforce matters. can they get goods and services efficiently? is government transparent? this year, we had 147 business places on the books. we had more than l.a., phoenix, and philadelphia combined. we massively consolidated them down to 43. i do not like you focusing on city hall. i want you focusing on your customer. my favorite example of this consolidation was if you buy a dog, they need a license. if he so the caller, you need another license. if you want to offer the service of watching the dog, you need another license. i was just looking for a kid to b
bragging that he could do it, but it was also a warning to us. what if the next time that happens it's a larger utility or a group of smaller utilities around the country, maybe water, maybe electricity, maybe gas, and this time they're not just warning us or showing us our vulnerability but they're actually going to disrupt the flow of electricity or water to people who depend on it. that's -- that's the kind of crisis that we face and why it is so urgent that we deal with this. so let me come back to my dream. my goal here is that as we go on this week, we're able to submit a manager's amendment, but it's not just from the managers, senators collins, rockefeller, feinstein and i. we're joined by a much broader group and we form a broad bipartisan consensus here to protect our country from a terrible danger that is real, urgent and growing. mr. president, i always like to -- i was thinking about it again in this case -- think back in these moments. since i don't see anybody else on the floor, i will undulling myself and go back to a hot july day in philadelphia -- indulge myself and
injured, two counts each because the prosecutors haven't decided which law they will use at trial. some victims and some relatives - re in the courtroom in cntennial, colorado, and so was john blackstone. blhn, what did you see? >> scott, well, james holmes still has orange hair and he looks as if he hasn't shaved todae he was arrested. but in court today he showed no emotion. and he stared up at the ceiling. he often opened his eyes very wide for no apparent reason. but he never made eye contact with the victims or their families who were in the courtroom. >> reporter: this was holmes in court last week, the last time o saw him on camera. this time the judge barred cameras from the courtroom. some of those still healing from wounds suffered in the theater shooting came to the court to see him formally charged. ali garbi, whose 16-year-old son ldffered a head wound, came in search of an answer. >> i want to ask him why he did it. i mean you know, why he did it. >> reporter: but holmes said just one word today. the judge asked if he agreed to waive his right to a preliminary hearing in 3
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their
